#ROCKTHEBLOCK 1st Annual Sneaker Donation Drive For Newark's Needy #FestivalSeason in partnership with Prudential Center

In July 2016, the 11th Annual Lincoln Park Music Festival expanded our Sustainable Health and Wellness Village (SHWV) from its roots as a "mini-festival" within LPMF, to a series of events leading up to the festival, where the whole city had the opportunity to get involved, get active and get moving toward a healthier lifestyle! Part of our SHWV efforts included the collection of sneakers for Newark's needy in partnership with Prudential Center.

The Prudential Center supported LPCCD's Autism Walk on May 22, the Music Speaks: Rock The Shot photography program, the Lincoln Park Music Festival Kids Zone Village and more. We began at Music Speaks: Music Festival in July and, our partner Prudential Center, held their own internal sneaker drive. Together, we collected nearly 8 boxes and barrels of "kicks" for our fellow Newarkers in need.

On Friday, September 9th, The City of Newark, Catholic Charities and Bridges Outreach presented I.M.P.A.C.T Day in Lincoln Park, a day of services for the needy and homeless. Together with our partner Prudential Center, we donated our boxes of footwear at this event.
